setting backup device order

Recommended Posts

I'm running Retro Single Server 6.0/Windows on a Windows 2000 Server. There are two tape devices, a 40GB/80GB DLT drive and a 20GB/40GB DAT drive. I want the backup script to use both devices, starting with the DLT and flowing onto the DAT. I've tried dragging the drives using the hand in the Configure Devices window, but they won't stay where I put them. How to I set the order the drives will be used in and assure that the backup will flow from one to the next?

 

Thanks.

Hi

 

Are you sure Retrospect will use both devices in the same set? Depending on the media Retropsect does not often like to mix and match tapes very often.

 

I would run a very small backup to the tape in the drive you want to use first. Once the tape has been named Retrospect will always want to use it as the first member of the set - even when you do a recycle backup.
